    New guy here !

    Welcome Turbo1! We all started with just one piece. Looking forward to see how your OCCD progresses... A TX-12 AM/FM Tuner and SD/A 490t CD player sure would go nice with that CM-1090...

    My impression is that the DQ LP-1 is a great device for honing in bass response to match one's listening space.

    Congratulations on your inaugural post MRHP! Welcome...good to have you as a member here. I think there is a requirement for either 6 posts and/or 6 Member's total reputation points in order to post pics. Maybe Nahash can give us a clarification. Thanks to hifibourbon for the pics...good job! (sorry for misspelling your ID name in previous post)

    Buzzard Creek System

    Last Sunday Hi-Fi Bourbon and I made the trip to Barlow, KY to the residence of MRHP in order to retrieve a 2018 Carverfest amp kit (so graciously brought back by MRHP) and to visit/audition his audio system. One word describes the experience..."AWESOME". MRHP was very welcoming and his laid back demeanor made us feel as if we were visiting and old friend. A taste of Carverfest without the Bob C. factor. After an inventory of the amp kit parts we soon began playing with the toys. And what toys! We started listing to a system consisting of the following components: Sunfire tube preamplifier (not sure of model #), Carver Baby black tube amps (monoblocked), Dahlquist DQ-20 speakers, dual DIY subwoofers powered by Sunfire Architect's Choice Series II (625 x 2) amp and an Oppo BDP-103. The sound was very detailed and crystal clear and the subs kicked me right in the ass! I remember thinking "this is very close to the sound of a live concert". Excellent system synergy. We then swapped the Baby Blacks for Carver 180 tube amps (monoblocked) w/KT-120 tubes. The additional power produced a whole new level of dynamics and realism. We continued the audition with some tube rolling on the amps and preamp. Amazes me how tubes can change the sonic signature of a system. MRHP has a wonderful collection of rare vintage tubes. Some of the equipment we did not have time to listen to (as we didn't want to wearout our welcome) was a Lightstar amplifier and a TFM-75 amplifier. Another, of note, aspect of MRHP's components is his collection of early production pieces: TFM-75 (serial #1), Baby Black amps (serial #1 & #2), and 180 amps (pre-production prototypes' pre-serial #d). Quite the collection! Hi-Fi Bourbon took a few pics on his iPhone and I am hoping (With MRHP's permission) he will post them on this tread. Everyone loves the eye candy...🍬 Also, if I have made any misstatements about the components, maybe we can get MRHP (who recently joined our site, but is a long time member of our sister site) to chime in, elaborate or maybe even post additional pics. I think there are pics of some of his equip. on the "Carverfest 2018 Open Discussion and Pics" thread: page 3. Bottom Line is I was very impressed and came away with one prevailing thought...I need to rethink the need for adding the extra realism of a good subwoofer(s) to my system. Special thanks to MRHP for the most enjoyable visit... AS a side note we were unable to listen to his 2018 Carverfest 275 amps because they are still under construction. Hi-Fi Bourbon will be assembling my 275 amp kit, so I ask that if he has questions members here respond if you have the answers. Thanks in advance... Bob Carver equipment rocks!!!
